Sad news today that David Bowie has passed away after his 18 month battle with cancer. He just turned 69 on Friday.
David was a legendary musician who excelled in many genres like glam rock, soul, hard rock, dance pop and electronic. During his 40 year career that spanned 20 albums, David’s first hit was Space Oddity in 1969 and quickly became popular in the US with songs like Fame and Let’s Dance.
He was a huge icon in the 80s and was inspiration for modern artists like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who honoured him in their song And We Danced.
UK artist Helen Green made this awesome GIF last year, but was surprised to see it going viral again last week, in celebration of David’s 69th birthday on Friday.
A beautiful tribute:
